Tracy Schwegman represents the business owners at the Banks.
She says the Bengals success has been a blessing.
‘It’s been fun for these businesses to be at the epicenter,” says Schwegman. “It’s been a blessing from a business perspective. January and February are usually the worst business months.”
Drivers are reminded to use caution around the event site and seek alternate routes if possible.
CPD Capt. Doug Wiesman urges everyone to make plans on how to get home before going out.
“Just have a plan for how you’re going to get home,” said Capt. Wiesman. “We don’t want anybody wandering off by themselves. You know, stay in a group.”
In celebration of the Cincinnati Bengals’ historic season and trip to Super Bowl LVI – and to provide safe transportation to and from watch parties throughout the region – Metro is offering free fare on Sunday, Feb. 13.
All Metro fixed routes will run Sunday/holiday service that day.
